In the incident that roughly happened at 12.50 pm today (14 December), the victim, who was identified as Mohamad Nazrul, 41, died at the location while his wife, Norwahidah, 34, died on her way to the Slim River Hospital (HSR).

According to Harian Metro, Muallim District Police Chief Superintendent Sulizmie Affendy Sulaiman said the accident involved a Toyota Altis car with a Yamaha Xmax scooter.

He said the initial police investigation found that a 40-year-old man driving from the north towards Johor lost control of his vehicle and skidded into the right lane and hit the divider in the middle of the road.

“As a result, the car was in the middle of the road. Suddenly, a married couple on the scooter approached but they did not have time to dodge the vehicle. They hit the back door on the left side of the vehicle,” he explained.

“The incident caused the car and scooter to catch fire. The rider died at the scene while the pillion rider died while on her way to the hospital,” he added on.
